Frequently Asked Questions

Can I find the difference between two time inputs?
Yes, you can add a formula block and subtract the two variables generated against each time input. Learn more about the formula block here – https://clappia.com/help/using-formula-block/

What will be the timezone of the input?
Since the user is providing input without any timezone, it should be assumed that the person has filled his/her timezone. In case the timezone is a strict requirement because your users are in different zones, you should add a dropdown block with all possible times zones for the users to select.
